Unbelievable. .. that yellow rose is called ‘freesia’ – a beautiful clear yellow with a most gorgeous scent …  this picture is  shot from the hip on my afternoon walk.  But freesia is blooming in my garden too !  Remember it is winter down our way.

i love the lines and shadows highlighted by that wonderful red.  Its a painting in waiting.

okay … dont get too weirded out … i have a wonderful collection of bones (birds, rats, the occasional skull of a farm animal) …  when i find a dead animal in my garden i place on a particular rock – and leave it there for as long as it takes (many weeks) and the ants, rain and other busy dealers of nature clean up the bones nicely.

I then drop whats left into bleach which cleans it completely and whitens the bones.  They are stored according to size and in this case the animal – this is a bunch (bundle? slew ?) of snake bones …

so beautiful.  I use them in assemblages and hope to show you one day when I get them up onto the net.

stay tuned – i have been painting the last few weeks and have an idea in progress … >>> Gina

  1. “shot from the hip,” eh? Your hip is sharper than my eye.

  2. practise practise ! of course my reject pile is far greater than my successes but i shoot from the hip a lot as people get a bit nervous with a camera aimed at their homes or them self.
